  • Beautiful log cabin

    Beautiful log cabin. Surrounding gardens lovely, as were the views. Comfortable and excellent facilities. Well stocked with shampoo/conditioner in all showers (a nice touch) Plenty of tea bags and some yummy cookies for us in the kitchen!

    Massive lodge - really amazing first time in a log cabin ; tonnes of space ; perfect for our wee 4 legged family member ; snooker was awesome ; spa pool was excellent ; all facilities just as you needed ; great / non-invasive host support - all up a most relaxing weekend. Coffee in a cape cod chair on the deck watching the sunrise or set on Ruapehu? Priceless....
